You say to-MAY-to, I say to-MAH-to. It is still a reptile.

My coworkers had an alligator stand at state fair, there was always line there. I've tasted it couple of times. I suppose if you are hungry and the only thing there to eat is alligator then you can eat it, otherwise I would not recommend it. It does not taste like chicken.

The tail meat, and the cheek meat are tender & tasty fried...IF not over cooked. The rest of the critter (red meat) is best suited to braising methods.
Sauce piquant, Creole, Fricassee,(not the french version) or perhaps in a red gravy with pasta.... and a gumbo is not out of the question.
There is only one Quality worse than Hardness of Heart, and that is Softness of Head.

We eat crocodile down here (mostly just the tail), and it tastes great! I know it's stereotyping by saying that it "tastes like chicken", but it really does. I don't know why it isn't more popular down here because crocs are farmed now.
